Canada: Five killed in shooting incident in Toronto

Toronto: Five people were killed in a shooting incident on Sunday night in the suburbs of the Canadian city of Toronto, police said.

At around 7:20 pm, officers responded to an active shooting call at the building in Vaughan, a city just north of Toronto, York Regional Police Chief Jim MacSween said in a news conference, as reported by CNN.

Police found a “horrendous scene where numerous victims were deceased,” MacSween said. A surviving victim who was shot was taken to a hospital in serious condition, police said in a release.

The suspect also died after an exchange of fire with law enforcement, he added.

“We offer our sincere condolences to the victims and their families,” MacSween said.

The victims were found in different apartments in the building, which is located in Vaughan, in the suburbs about 30 kilometers (20 miles) north of Toronto, as reported by AFP.

Residents were evacuated immediately and dozens of ambulances and police officers were at the scene in the evening, Canadian media said.

Police were investigating the motive and whether there was a connection between the victims and the male suspect, who has not been named.
